Cricket Pitch Construction
Owing to their own distinguished features cricket pitches and outfields are different. GIRDHARI LAL CONTRACTORâs rich experience in the construction and maintenance of cricket wickets and pitches is ensures expert planning and utmost care in every project. Special materials are required while constructing a cricket pitch. Special loam soils are used over clay to provide the precise level of bounce and movement off the pitch. This process is essential to maintain the âBall Bounceâ. We assure the best of services at the most affordable prices. We specialize in renovating cricket pitches and we utilize a wide range of our equipments to remove an old pitch, rebuild a new one and laser level to ensure a perfect playing surface for future years.

Binding Strength Test
The naturally available top soil may need addition of one or other type of soil to make it good top soil. Fortunately in India vast variety of soils are available. One of sample top soil form Village Pamal, near Ludhiana has the following properties :

  • Coarse Sand 5%,
  • ilt 50% and clay 45% (Tested as per IS 2720 Part-4) Liquid Limit 44% Plastic Limit 28% and PI 16 (IS 2720 Part-5),
  • Linear shrinkage 11% (IS 2720 Part-20),
  • Free Swell Index 25% (IS 2720 Part-40) and strength (½â x 1â cylinder of soil converted into motty) 95 Kg

Adding just 5 % of fine sand will makes a good top soil. Because of the poor laying, irrigation, compaction and maintenance techniques most of pitches prepared using this soil have become slow with time.

Pitch Construction
Suggestions for a correctly constructed pitch
  • Careful assessment of the drainage: Unless there is a threat of a developing aperched water table, a perimeter drain surrounding the table should be sufficient to drain surface water and reduce lateral uptake of water by the table if a plastic lining is not present.
  • Avoid complicated (and unnecessary) combinations of a range of materials under the bulli. Medium crusher-run stone should be sufficient.
  • Ensure the use of only finest grade clay, which has been analyzed and passed.
  • Consult widely and make certain that each stage of construction has been carefully researched and planned. Do not allow a hurried operation to justify short cuts.
  • Ensure adequate compaction occurs at every possible stage.

Construction Specifications
  • Base conditions and base layers: the most general is the use of medium crusher run stone
  • Each material layer must be bonded or keyed to the layer below
  • The clay should be of superior quality meeting the standard specifications
  • Good compaction must be achieved at every level and sub-level
  • There have been ten cases of pitch construction where, on an average, the total depth of excavation was 450mm, of which the clay soil depth was 240 - 250mm (54%). According to our sources, longer versions, which last four or five days, demand greater depth of clay for adequate preparation and strength. So shallow bulli must not be used
  • Bulli of less than 100mm is not advised. Bulli of this depth should be compacted onto a stone layer and not onto loam or sand
  • Plastic sheeting between the table and the outfield should be inserted to stop the infringement of invader grass species
